Yesterday was Mallory's 9-month birthday. Today, Patrick will be helping me take her monthly portrait; it's much easier to take more formal pictures of her with Patrick's help than by myself these days. Mallory is getting around pretty quickly now! Though I think her means of travel can me a lot more efficient, it works for her. I don't think I'm ready for her to be moving around any faster, though I know it's inevitable! Here's a little video I took of Mallory yesterday scooting around in her "army style" crawl.
